The First Google Wave Search You Must Know

If you were lucky enough to get into Google Wave this week, you probably wondered "Now what?" when you found nobody to wave with. If that’s the case, here’s the first search command every Wave newbie needs to know: with:public.

If anyone on your Google account’s Contacts lists also has Wave access, you’re

set–but for some folks that’s no one, or just one person. I’ve gotten a few waves from people saying "I have no one to talk to, and you’re the only one on my list."

Entering a search for with:public returns a huge moving sea of public waves anyone can read and update. There you can dive in, meet other wavers, see what’s possible with Wave, and ask how to do stuff. Wave documentation is building up fast and furious inside Wave, and since everyone’s new to it, everyone is asking questions and lending each other a hand.

Tired of your inbox crawling with public waves? Save a search for waves sent just to you by using the in:inbox to:you@googlewave.com to pare down your list, replacing you@googlewave.com with your own address.
